School Reviews

HCA has been an answered prayer for our daughter as we are starting our 2nd year at HCA. She wakes up excited to go to school. Her love of learning and participating in activities have blossomed since our move from public school to HCA. The staff has done an amazing job transitioning our daughter from public to private. The teachers are willing to accommodate any extra help that your child may need. The atmosphere is genuine. We are very happy we made the move. HCA is a fantastic school that provides outstanding academics and a great moral foundation for students. It really is like a family for the students and parents.

HCA has been a great choice for our son. He enjoys going to school and is receiving a quality christian education. We have been pleased with the facilities, academics, athletic programs and parent involvement.

I have three children at this school and all three are happy there and getting an excellent education. Every teacher we have encountered cares about each child and does an amazing job of teaching not only the information the kids need but also critical thinking, good decision making and Christian values. This is our fourth year here and look forward to the next ten years.

HCA offers quality Christian education. Our children have thrived in every aspect of growth spiritually and academically. Very well rounded program. I would recommend anyone looking to secure their child's future this is where it begins. Christian education is our responsibility as parents. HCA parent 7 years and counting.

Great school and teachers! The teachers are caring and spend extra time helping students. I would not send my child back to the public school system after seeing the difference in my child.

We have just started our first year at HCA. It has already been a significant improvement over the local public school system. Our son is enjoying the new experience very much! The communication to the parents is also regular & timely!
